Getting into a motor vehicle accident is scary. There's that moment of panic when you realize collision is imminent and that frantic feeling when you try to determine how badly you and other passengers are hurt. The details of each accident are different. In many cases, people walk away with minor injuries. However, some accidents are more serious. While most people consider fatal car accidents the worst, having someone die in a collision isn't the only possible negative outcome. Many of the most common injuries people experience after a major car wreck can change someone's life and ability to work.
